DIY TARTAN SKINNY TIE
But as I've already made him bow ties (like this knitted one and this tartan one), he might need to wait a bit longer for that one. But I've never made a tie before, so that sounded fun. I used this pattern from See Kate Sew, which is simple and easy to follow. Though I think if I were to make it again, I'd probably add about 10 cm to the length of it and try to make it all in one long piece rather than two. And as the tartan fabric is quite thick to begin with, I probably shouldn't have added interfacing, as I think it would have been thick enough on its own. But doesn't he look spiffy? It'd be fun to make more of these, in all sorts of patterns. Though I probably shouldn't say that too loudly, or ties will be all I'm sewing from now on.
